Nice healthy looking fish and rocks good. Id leave out plants but that is personal choice.
Looking good :smile:

I originally didnt have the plants in, but I have a fryieri who is a bit of a bully and he lives in the cave on the right hand corner and would chase the fish to the other end of the tank, someone suggested put a plant near his cave as a marker and it worked he now only chases as far as the plant and the other fish seem much happier, and it looked daft with one plant so I got some more which some of the smaller fish seem to like. I was unsure at first but Ive got use to them now. Thanks for your comments.

Thanks Clare, it was your tank that gave me the inspiration. Whats your thoughts on the plants, I didn't like them at first but they are growing on me now and the fish seem to like them. I also think the tank needs something yellow, fish wise???? What you think???

Your missing yellow labs or sp44 which are 90% red tiger pattern fish and I like the plants. I am thinking of adding some myself but just need the right ones. :)

Really loving the colours of the fish, some yellow labs would look perfect in there too.

Cheers mate. Ive just added some yellow labs and it has made a big difference to the tank. Would just like something that is more red now???

Ndumbi super red would give you ice blue and deep red.

Ive already got some of these in Clare, 2 males would they colour up more with females in or not. I was thinking more of the Rubesens (think Ive spelt that right) for adding the red, but is the red on them similar to the red on the "OB Fire"???? as Ive already got 3 of these. :text-thankyoublue:

Just looked at the photos again and to be honest I think you have enough red, you have the firefish and the firefish ice and OB fire. Why not try for something more blue like socolofi?

Nice tank. I used to have a pair of Albino M.Callainos like yours. Trouble was they were both very aggressive. Ended up splitting them up.
